Not much in the way of opportunities with overcast skies and constant rain so I propped up a window and captured a few exposures.

Lovely colors and bokeh! That's also some really impressive clarity, especially for an older lens.

Thanks Adam! I've found that these old Takumar lenses have unique clarity, tonality and lovely color rendition. They're manual focus and you have to use an adapter and dial in the focal length on the camera. Of course you have to set your desired apeture on the lense but if in apeture mode the camera will meter the scene and pick the shutter speed for you. Of course you can go full manual as well. It's may intention to pick up a few more of these old era prime lenses.
